Event, Place, and Narrative Craft: Method and Meaning in Microhistory

With the support of the School of American Research (SAR) in Santa Fe , NM , I have been developing an Advanced Seminar devoted to exploring the methods and contributions of microhistory. The first meeting in July 2004 was devoted to producing a proposal along the lines described in the short description of microhistory above.

In July 2005, a larger seminar will be held on the theme “Event, Place, and Narrative Craft: Method and Meaning in Microhistory” which will feature invited papers and discussion (by Richard Maddox, Mary Baudry, Dale Tomich, Rebecca Emigh, Linda Gordon, Chris DeCorse, James Brooks, Donald Eiss, Kent Lightfoot, Kathy Blee, and John Walton) followed by publication of the collection by SAR Press. Funding permitting, SAR plans to conduct a Summer Institute on the subject for graduate students with the published collection and its authors serving as text and faculty.
